SORRENTO, Fla. -- Augusta State posted a nine-over 293 Friday in the second round of the NCAA Southeast Regional at Red Tail Golf Club.

The 38th-ranked Jaguars are in 12th place in the 14-team field heading into Saturday’s third and final round. ASU is 15 shots out of the top five. The low five teams and the low individual not on those teams will advance to the NCAA Championships, slated for May 26-30 at historic Inverness Club in Toledo, Ohio and hosted by the University of Toledo.

Sophomore Henrik Norlander again paced the Jags with a one-under 70 and is tied for 15th. Freshman Taylor Floyd is tied for 44th at two-over 144 after a 73. Senior Janne Kaske is tied for 53rd at four-over 146 following a four-over 75. Junior Jake Amos and sophomore Carter Newman are each tied for 57th at five-over 147.

Regional host Central Florida maintained its two-shot lead over Arizona, while Georgia and Charlotte are third and fourth. South Carolina and Kentucky are tied for fifth. Only three shots separate fifth through ninth place.

Arizona’s Tarquin McManus backed up his first-round 63 with a five-under 66 and moved out to a five-shot lead in the race for medalist honors. UCF’s David Johnson (66-68) is second while the Charlotte tandem of Stefan Wiedergruen and Cory Nagy is tied for third at seven-under 135. Arizona’s Tyler Neal and Campbell’s Zak Drescher are tied for fifth at six-under 136.

ASU will be paired with Georgia Southern and Campbell in Saturday’s third and final round. Amos will lead off for the Jags at 8:50 a.m. on the 10th tee, followed by Newman at 9:00, Kaske at 9:10, Floyd at 9:20 and Norlander at 9:30.
